Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer har det ukentlige temaet Book Blogger Hop, og ukens spørsmål var "How much of your day is devoted to your blog, and how much is devoted to reading?".
Selv bruker jeg toppen en time til dagen på selve bloggen, enten det er skriving av innlegg, legge dem ut på sosiale medier, svare på kommentarer, etc, men jeg prøver å lese i bøker cirka to timer om kvelden, etter jeg er ferdig med pensum og "alt annet" for dagen. Jeg har funnet ut at hjernen min ikke takler for mye (tungt) pensum på kvelden, og dermed er det greit å slappe av med noe lettere.

As we're writing 2022 in two months, I figured out it was time to announce the 2022 Diversity Challenge. I've hosted it in 2019 and 2021, and decided to host it next year too. I’m not going to make any categories or levels for this challenge, as I want it to be a bit flexible. Read as many books as you feel like reading and yes, it can be children’s books, graphic novels, e-books, non-fiction, audio books, poetry and you-name-it. As it is a diversity reading challenge, it would be mean to exclude some types of reading materials, right? Now, what is diversity you might ask? What I mean by diversity is, but not limited to; People of colour/non-caucasian characters/authors Native Americans and other indigenous people LGBTQIA+ Authors/characters defining themselves as trans, intersex, genderfluid or similar Refugees Religious minorities Mental illnesses/disorders Neurodiversity (like ADD, Aspergers and autism) Feminist themes/issues Physical/mental disabilities Characters/authors w
When I looked at my bookshelves, I realised I had quite a few unread non-fiction books about World War II. As a way to kick myself in the rear, I figured out I wanted to read more about that topic next year and why not host a reading challenge so others could participate too? I guess I'm not the only one with an interest in that topic. As with the 2022 Diversity Reading Challenge I'm hosting, I'll make things fairly easy, no sign-ups required.

The challenge will run from January 1st 2022 until December 31st 2022. Even if I don't have any sign-ups or anything, feel free to post on Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #TrykksverteWW2ReadingChallenge , as it would be fun to see what you're reading, if you're willing to share. It's perhaps time to go through the shelves in se
